Goin´ Down was composed upon reqeuest by Marcel Worms, a piano player, who has been collecting piano pieces by composers with the Blues as main theme.
I tries to campure the blues feeling in my work; the restlessness, the infinite journey, with a big dose of melancholy. Musically this becomes apparent through a descending chromatic scale, regular in structure as in traditional blues music, which is fought against desperatly, but cannot be overcome...

´Goin´Down´ was commissioned by het Fonds voor de Scheppende Toonkunst.
